FURTHER BENCHMARKING

BCIT Diplomas + BBA versus SFU BBA Majors

  • Why SFU?
  • SFU was the model that OLA & BCIT adapted in 1989.
  • The tri-semester system of SFU was created in 1964 to make SFU programs more flexible than the traditional model of UBC
  • Originally, UBC grouped students by academic year
    • Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior
